Four more suspects in UFUN's alleged pyramid scheme will be taken into custody today, assistant national police chief Lt-General Suwira Songmetta said yesterday.

Police had checked the background and criminal behaviour of 164 suspects in the case - which they deem as money-laundering - so that charge was added.

Suwira said nine police teams, totalling 150 officers, were hunting for 110 fugitives and their assets. He warned that people who help suspects to conceal assets would also be subject to legal action.

With 19 fugitives having already fled to other countries, Thai police had information about their crimes and identity translated to English and forwarded to Interpol, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation and police in other countries to locate and extradite them.
